PORTAGE (WKZO) -- It turned out to be a big event to kick off the Easter Week, bigger than even organizers expected. An Easter Egg Hunt in Portage drew more youngsters than have ever participated before.

The event, which was organized by the Kalamazoo Area Runners Club was designed to promote fitness. Children over 5 did their egg hunting along a mile long route that trailed thru the woods behind Portage West Middle School. Toddlers did their egg hunting in the playground.

Fortunately the Easter Bunny was on hand to help out any children who weren’t quite quick enough to get to the brightly colored eggs spread out in the grass.

 

After the big hunt there were treats and door prizes.

Families were asked to bring along canned goods to contribute to Loaves and Fishes.
